To win the war on energy you need to name the enemy

Obama Energy Regulations

“If you don’t call it something, you can’t connect the dots,” said Rudy Giuliani talking about ISIS. “If you can’t connect the dots, you can’t really combat it … you can’t have the battle of ideas … If you are going to debate it, you have to call it what it is.” The same can be said about the organized attack on fossil fuel development and use in America. If you don’t acknowledge a battle of ideas exists, you can’t connect the dots, and you can’t really combat it. It has recently been revealed that Russia is laundering tens of…

What’s next for the Keystone pipeline?

Obama Keystone veto

After six years of dithering, the Keystone pipeline project has finally cleared both the Senate and the House with strong bipartisan support—mere percentage points away from a veto-proof majority. Now it goes to the White House where President Obama has vowed to veto it. We won’t have to wait long. He has ten days to make a decision. The Keystone pipeline should have never had to be an issue in Congress. Because it crosses an international border, the pipeline requires the approval of the State Department—not the president. However, since the Secretary of State—first Hillary Clinton and now John Kerry—serves…

Obama surrenders to Putin and environmental extremists

President Obama’s newly announced plans to designate one of the largest oil fields in U.S. as “wilderness,” is foolhardy at best—and may be anti-American at worst. When you look at the bigger story, you have to wonder whose side he stands on in the new “cold war.” In a YouTube video, Obama called on Congress to set aside all of Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) as wilderness—which would prohibit motorized access, road construction, and halt “any chance of oil exploration.” The January 25 announcement, according to the Washington Post (WP): “is just the first in a series of decisions…

My State of the Union wish list

ObamaSOTU

I watched the unity march, following the brutal attacks in Paris: forty world leaders but no U.S. presence. It made me wonder: “How has the state of our Union gone from being the shining city on the hill, to a country whose light has dimmed?” I thought about the policies and initiatives President Obama—the leader of the free world—has put in place. I could think of none that have increased our international influence, but many that have minimized it by hurting America economically. At Tuesday night’s State of the Union Address (SOTU), he will likely tick off a list of…

In Cape Cod and elsewhere, wind energy is dead in the water

Touted as “America’s first offshore wind project,” Cape Wind became one of America’s most high-profile and most controversial wind-energy projects. Fourteen years in the making, estimated at $2.6 billion for 130 turbines, covering 25 square miles in Nantucket Sound off the coast of Massachusetts, the Cape Wind project has yet to install one turbine—let alone produce any electricity. Now, it may be “dead in the water.” On January 6, the two power companies, National Grid and Northeast Utilities, that had agreed to purchase most of the electricity Cape Wind was to generate, terminated their contracts with the developers due to…
